2023 European Championships
Helsinki, Finland January 23-29, 2023
Visit one of the premier winter destinations while watching your favorite skaters.
Finland is a country with so much to do for outdoor enthusiasts, as well as those who enjoy learning about different cultures. In Helsinki visitors should make sure to visit all the unique churches including Rock Church which is built right into (you guessed it) a rock. Visitors can also walk on water (when the bay is frozen in winter) and visit one of the many public saunas that Finland is known for. And visitors should try the local cuisine which includes reindeer and arctic berries.
When you are in Finland, you need to take a few extra days to explore the famous Lapland. The area is known for its abundance of winter outdoor activities. Lapland can easily be accessed by train from Helsinki. In Lapland visitors can see the Northern Lights, dog sled, come up and close with reindeer, snow shoe, cross country ski, downhill ski, snowboard or visit Santa 365 days a year. Visitors can stay in unique accommodations including igloos and ice hotels.
